If you have an outstanding warrant from the City of Lufkin, NOW would be a good time to get that handled.  

Beginning March 23rd, the City of Lufkin Municipal Court will be concentrating their efforts to address non-compliance with court orders. If you do not resolve your tickets now, you may be subject to arrest.

As part of this initiative, the Lufkin Municipal Court is offering amnesty on warrants and warrant fees if individuals come to court to address their outstanding obligations. Individuals who voluntarily come to court may immediately see a judge to have warrant fees on their cases waived.

The warrant round up will be conducted from Friday, March 23 through Thursday, March 29.

During those dates, the Lufkin Municipal Court will be open for extended hours on the following dates and times: Friday, March 23, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., Saturday, March 24th, from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m., and Monday, March 26th through Wednesday, March 28th, from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., and Thursday, March 29th, from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m.

If you are stopped while driving your vehicle and arrested, your vehicle may be impounded, which would result in additional tow and storage fees.

Affected persons are urged to contact the Lufkin Municipal Court during the next two weeks to dispose of their cases voluntarily to avoid the inconvenience and embarrassment of arrest at home or work in front of family, friends, or co-workers. Please take care of your tickets now to avoid arrest. If you voluntarily appear to take care of your tickets with Lufkin Municipal Court, you will not be arrested.

Payments (in full) may be made 24 hours a day, 7 days a week online at http://www.cityoflufkin.com/click2gov.htm. Partial payments are not accepted online.
